Sophie was playing at a friend's house. The mom called and asked me to come down because Sophie was hurt. When I got there Sophie was crying and holding a paper towel to her head. She had joined two of her friends on a hammock and fell straight off landing on her head. I carried her to my car and stopped at our house hoping Kate would come with us to Instacare. "Kate will you grab ice?" I requested. She came back quickly with a ziplock bag of ice and Sophie's stuffed animal Vinci. It was so sweet of her to consider Sophie's comfort. That stuffed animal helped alleviate Kate's nerves as doctor's and nurses discussed the staples that would be required to close her wound. She was brave, Kate was helpful and the doctor was kind...and Vinci never left her side.
